We’re reaching for the moon in this year’s programme with two weeks of world class art and quirky entertainment.
Grab a Festival Passport (as you’ll be crossing the border in and out of England and Wales) and follow our Festival down the Wye in glorious bluebell-laden, lime green, new leaf spring time.
Throw in some circus fun and games, giant puppets at the River Carnival in Hereford, a spot of philosophical moon gazing, pilgrimage walks, art by the Arborealists and fire sculptures at the Festival finale in Llandogo and you have two weeks of festival fun beside the nation’s favourite river.
Most of the events are free – including the Hereford River Carnival, Jony Easterby’s night time spectacular and events at Symonds Yat, all the events in Monmouth and the Festival Finale in Llandogo.
